NAME
       pvck - check physical volume metadata

SYNOPSIS
       pvck  [-d|--debug]  [-h|--help]  [-v|--verbose]  [--labelsector] Physi-
       calVolume [PhysicalVolume...]

DESCRIPTION
       pvck checks physical volume LVM metadata for consistency.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       --labelsector sector
              By default, 4 sectors of PhysicalVolume are scanned for  an  LVM
              label, starting at sector 0.  This parameter allows you to spec-
              ify a different starting sector for the scan and is  useful  for
              recovery  situations.   For example, suppose the partition table
              is corrupted or lost on /dev/sda, but you suspect there  was  an
              LVM  partition  at  approximately 100 MB.  This area of the disk
              may be scanned by using the --labelsector parameter with a value
              of 204800 (100 * 1024 * 1024 / 512 = 204800):

              pvck --labelsector 204800 /dev/sda

              Note  that  a  script can be used with --labelsector to automate
              the process of finding LVM labels.
